First off those are Manual remote mirrors. Thats not a wire, Thats a couple of cables. As a rod on the inside of the car on the door is rotated, the mirror is pulled by those cables into position. (I work at a body shop) Second. Seven "Elenores" were build by Cinema Vehicles for the movie. Some were used for closeups some for in-car camera and some were modified by Total Control Products L.L.C. for hard driving stunts. The "reatached" mirror is on a car that wasn't damaged in the shot, (bad editing) As the car runs off after stalling near the police car. (this would be the close up car)the damaged car, (the total control prepared car) was the one with the dangling mirror, and thats why in later chase scenes its seen hanging off still. for a wealth of info on Elenore, check out http://www.totalcontrolproducts.com/vehicles/60sec/index.html

After viewing this movie for the first time my friend pointed out that the mirror had been totally re-attached and also that there were dents in the car that would disappear. I however didn't catch any of these but they seem believable.

I'm not sure about this but i don't believe power mirrors were available in 1968. And if they weren't then what would the mirror need a wire for? Just a thought.

You can tell that the car is pretty tricked out , nitrous, side exhaust, etc, you can reasonably assume that whose ever car it was had power mirrors installed too.

They had remote mirrors, but not power mirrors. The cable attached to a lever, which could be used to adjust the mirrors from inside the car.

The mirror that gets smashed never falls off the car. Later, when confronting the bad guy (can't remember his name at the moment) and he's arguing with him about delivering the car, Memphis says "Just needs a little paint... some fixing up" or something to that effect, and while he's saying this, he tries to fix the mirror back on, which is hanging off by a wire.

A car tricked out with nitrous gas and side exhaust pipes would seem to me to be adjusted for speed and not comfort, I don't see why the owner would have had electric mirrors installed, it would only add weight to the car.

The reason it is reatached is: They used alot of the same cars in those scenes, And they probobly wrecked the car and had to use another car to file the scene... (They used about 3 cars when he jumps the Tow-Truck

When he's being chased around the construction yard you can see the mirror is still hanging off.

I don't think that this is a good one because they just might have put new mirrors on it to make it look better.
